Edited by Zoltán Bánréti, researcher of NYTK, a volume presenting the grammar of the Hungarian language published by Amsterdam University Press


Edited by Zoltán Bánréti, leader of the Neurolinguistics Research Group of the ELKH Hungarian Research Centre for Linguistics (NYTK), the volume entitled Syntax of Hungarian: Coordination and Ellipsis has been published by Amsterdam University Press.

The book aims to present a synthesis of the currently available syntactic knowledge of the Hungarian language rooted in theory but providing highly detailed descriptions and intended to be of use to researchers, as well as advanced students of language and linguistics. As research in language leads to extensive changes in our understanding and representations of grammar, the Comprehensive Grammar Resources series intends to present the most current understanding of grammar and syntax as completely as possible in a way that will both speak to modern linguists and serve as a resource for the non-specialists.

This volume provides a comprehensive overview and description of coordinate structures, the syntactic and semantic types of conjunctions, as well as the types of ellipses in sentences and short dialogues. It discusses multiple conjunctions, coordinated wh-constructions, sluicing and sentence fragments.
